Dickerson, Lyle - Model 7613, 7'6" 2/2 5wt Bamboo Fly Rod
For sale here is a Lyle Dickerson model 7613, 7'6" 5wt bamboo rod in excellent condition. This is a late era rod, likely produced in the mid 1960's. Bright guides and tip tops, wrapped in brown thread with black tipping. Light gray agate stripping guide and 4 narrow signature wraps between the stripper and Dickerson signature. There is a dark growers mark in the cane on the flat opposite the agate stripping guide. It is quite clearly original to the build and is purely cosmetic. The rod features a bent wire loop hook keeper, reverse half wells grip that has been cleaned, and down-locking aluminum reel seat with walnut spacer and nickel silver pocketed butt cap. 13/64" ferrules fit perfectly. A few of the guide wraps have a light overcoat, and a protective stripe of varnish has been applied over the Dickerson signature. This is a great example of a scarce and extremely desirable Dickerson configuration. Sold in original pale green fold over bag with no tube.
